16U Tigers take AABC National Championship

Congratulations to the Dallas Tigers Hernandez for winning the 2012 AABC Mickey Mantle World Series. Tigers Hernandez have now won their third straight National Championship in as many years, winning Super Series World Series in 2010, AABC Ken Griffey Jr. National Championship in 2011 and now the AABC Mickey Mantle.  My hats off to every kid on this team. Each one of these kids had a role and played it to the best of their ability.  Their sacrifice, confidence, resilience, attitude and heart are what separates these guys from many, many other teams. Thank you to the parents for their support!
